City Hopping!

I’m so excited to be able to go on vacation! It will be the first one in about nine years. I feel weird because it’s my first vacation as an adult. Meaning, I won’t be with my mother or siblings. It’ll just be me and my best friend hanging out in a new city.

So, I’ll be gone from tomorrow, June 21st until the 25th and I’ll be updating along the way. My trip is a little more complicated than my friends because I have to meet up with her but this is how it will go!

June 21st: Philadelphia to New York City
-I arrive at her house some time in the evening. We chill and sleep because we’re up at four the next morning.

June 22: New York City to Boston (Our vacation destination!)
-We leave at four in the morning to catch a 6am bus that will get us to Boston at eleven.
-We arrive and check into The Courtyard Marriot Hotel and have lunch
-At noon we catch a cruise ship in the Boston waters
-At 1pm we visit the Boston Aquarium
-At 4pm we visit Paul Reveree’s House
-At 6pm we have dinner

June 23rd: Downtown Boston
-8am breakfast
-9am Old Town Trolley
-10am Bunker Hill
-12pm Old Town Trolley
-2pm Lunch
-3pm Old House
-6pm Dinner

June 24th: Self Tour of Boston and Back to New York City
-Bus leaves Boston at 6pm and We arrive at 11pm

June 25th: New York City to Philadelphia
-I leave NYC at 6:30pm and arrive In Philadelphia at 8:30pm

Well, I know that seems like a lot for such a short amount of time but we wanted to make the best of the short time we will spend in Boston. Do you have any vacation plans this summer?

Recipe: Mini Cinnabuns

I created this recipe one day because I wanted something sweet but I didn’t want some overly preserved store bought snack and I didn’t have enough time to make anything from scratch. It’s a really cheap and quick recipe that gives you the feeling of homemade without a long trip to the grocery store. Most of everything on the list might already be in your own kitchen. I hope you try it and enjoy it!

Sunny Sundays

I’m not feeling to good today and staying in bed all morning with nothing to watch on television has given me way too much time to think so I thought I’d come up with a way of brightening up my day instead of sulking and feeling sorry for myself. So here are a short list of things that make me happy.

Carbs. I know this sounds terrible but I love bread, pasta, rice etc! I’m sorry but you can’t convince me to take them out of my diet. The end.

Spicy anything. I hate to make this a list of foods but I can’t live without spicy food. If it were up to me, everything would be spicy. I add red peppers to almost every dish I cook. Well, almost every dish I cook for myself.

Cleaning. I have a habit of channeling Monica Geller when it comes to a clean house. I clean every morning, no matter how little of a mess the apartment is in. I’m not home most of the day and I like coming home to a clean bedroom. I couldn’t sleep otherwise.

Art. I wouldn’t have gone to art school if it didn’t make me happy.

PMS color swatches. They are expensive but when I find them, I keep them. I think it’s just the designer in me but they have provided so much inspiration in my art and other life choices. Weird and kind of dorky, I know but I love them.

I guess I better save some for another Sunday. Feel free to make your own Sunny Sunday list!
